As a self confessed chocoholic receiving a chocolate tasting experience as a birthday present was just perfect! I am a dark chocolate lover and I don't believe there are many chocolatiers I haven't tried. For me it's all about the flavour of the beans so...More

I really love this place. I’m lactose intolerant and love how much choice there is. The hot chocolate hazelnut with oat milk is to die for! Little uncomfortable listening the manager be unnecessarily passive aggressive with her staff members behind the counter.

It was close to being literally impossible to choose which cake to have, which variety of hot chocolate to purchase, whether to have ice cream and, in theory, how many scoops you could physically cope with, and then which - and how many - delectable...More

A family fixture for years for their amazing coffee, ice creams and their ethos. Sadly we had an undrinkable coffee with no refund the other day and new "free" wifi required log in with social media. The hazelnut ice cream was still delicious though. Hopefully,...More
